Food, gas, electricity and other necessities we have grown to accept in our lives, are not so easy to come by anymore. Let me be the first to Welcome you to 2035 the year we hit overpopulation. Everyone thought this was supposed to happen 15 years later but apparently, it's not that easy to ensure. So, here's the gist of year 2035, governments in different countries went into a panic, they all started taking volunteers to commit suicide which wasn't enough. Each country then decided to block themselves off from one another. So, we now have no idea what happens outside the United States.
With this happening the government took any idea they could get to control society once again and so The Part-Time Act was signed and put into place. Basically, the government has paid a certain amount to every place that has part-time associates. In return these places will be split into 2 sections one side safe and one side danger, the safe side ensures your safety with much higher prices on food and other materials sold, and the danger side are food and/or other materials for dirt cheap, but here's catch the employees on the danger side are getting paid with plus commission for every kill they make on the customers, there safe zone is making it to the cashiers.
Our story will follow Seth a young 17-year-old growing up in this time. All he wants is nothing more than to work hard and receive a normal life. But the question is can normal even exist anymore?
